Russian Tea Recipe

A yummy tea recipe with spices and real juices, packed with vitamin C to fight off the pesty cold that you've been dealing with.

  • 1 gallon + 2 cups of filtered water
  • ½ tsp organic whole cloves
  • ½ tsp organic ground cinnamon
  • 4 bags of organic black tea
  • 6 cups of organic orange juice
  • 6 cups of organic pineapple juice, or one 46 oz can
  • 4 cups of organic apple juice
  • ½ cup of organic lemon juice
  • Optional: ½ to 1 cup of organic cane sugar or other natural sweetener of your choice
  • Directions

    1. Get out two pots – a large stock pot to start your water mixture, and a small one in which to brew your tea.
    2. In the large pot, pour one gallon of water. Bring to a boil on high heat.
    3. In the small pot, pour two cups of water and bring to a boil. Add the four tea bags and reduce heat to low. Let the tea bags steep as you wait for the large pot of water to boil.
    4. When the large pot of water has come to a boil, add the ½ teaspoon of cinnamon and the ½ teaspoon of whole cloves. If you know for sure that you want to add sugar, this is a good time to add it. Once all of these ingredients are combined, pour in the tea that has been brewing.
    5. Next, you’re going to start adding juices. It doesn’t matter what order in which you pour them – just get them all in and stir them well.
    6. If you didn’t add sugar before, now you’ll need to taste the tea and make sure you’re happy with that decision. It’s good without sugar, but a little sour, and my family prefers it with half a cup of sugar added. If you do add sugar, stir well.
    7. Bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and allow the tea to simmer for a few more minutes to make sure everything is fully combined. This also concentrates the taste more.


    Keep in mind that this recipe will make just over two gallons of Russian tea. You’ll need to have a few large containers to hold it all. Store it in the refrigerator and reheat by the cup. The ingredients have a tendency to settle, so shake or stir well before serving.
    Since this is such a big recipe, you may want to save a few jars full of it to give to your neighbors or friends. Even when I’ve kept all of mine, though, it has never gone bad before we finished it.
